The Spyder2 tells us that we’re not that close and would end up compensating incorrectly. Some displays have other controls that you may be able to use to flatten out any peaks or valleys in your greyscale. Spyder let’s you create and load a profile for each monitor individually. If we check some of the other IRE values, we see that they’re all off as well. My points are from 23 to over 50 points away from the perfect D65 target.

However, due to making manufacturing as efficient and cheap as possible, they often miss the mark slightly. Whoever said a projector’s K value was accurate? Do the CRT tube surfaces you see appear white or are they tinted red and green respectively? While Apple and many other brands do calibrate all of their monitors in factory, this does not mean that stay calibrated, or are calibrated correctly.

JohnAD – I know everyone is wondering, so i’ll go ahead and ask. We recommend you use it with ChromaPure to make your calibration even easier. If your display has a comprehensive CMS available, we will make these adjustments at a later step.

We’ve now set our initial brightness setting correctly. It’s purely black, white or a shade of grey in-between.


You may want to set the “Time during which device calibration remains valid” to 0 to make sure that we don’t have to redo a calibration during this session, especially when you’re only just initially dialing things things in.


If the incirrect signal says to paint pure green, he goes to his green pot and uses that. Talk to a photographer long enough and the question of screen calibration will be brought up. The color space is the range of colours that we expect our sensor to see and standard definition SD and high definition HD have different ranges. It’s important to remember that this is completely incorrect!

When it arrives, compare it to your monitor’s viewing of the image and adjust your monitor to best match the print brightness and color calibration. Our average value cyan line dropped from 2. The last third are considerably more inaccurate. It’s free and can be downloaded here: Installation and Setup Ok! Set your blue tube’s electronic focus to whatever produces the sharpest picture spydrr likely already done this when you first set up the projector.

Your greyscale may be set perfectly, but if the colour space of a display is too far outside the SD or HD defined standards, that grass is going to look bright neon-green. Used to boost the uncorrect output in the higher end as the amount of blue typically drops off the higher you go with CRT projectors.

A gamma that is too high like mine means that our overal brightness will be better and we’ll have deeper blacks, but at the expense of losing details in the darker scenes. If your average gamma is above 2. With the Eye-One inocrrect result is perfect with great shadow detail.

Or is there anywhere you can get one for a Plasma? Try both and make the call.

Before we start calibrating, we should run through and see how far off our current greyscale actually is. In our hcffr we use an RTC external box to add a gamma boost which helps us achieve the proper gamma numbers.

There is nothing you need to do.

Many new displays today artificially boost or shift how they create colours in order to be able to display colours outside the Rec or Rec range. If you’re using a Plasma display, make sure to let the sensor warm up on the display for a good 30 minutes as the plasma will get warm and you want the sensor to stabilize to the same temperature.

This way we can comment on what still needs to be fixed and how to fix it if even possible. Click on the green triangle to spyver taking continuous readings: This sets the green and incorretc colour decoder adjustments correctly.
